Cory Millette and Justin Gutierrez each scored twice as the Lethbridge Hurricanes beat Swift Current 6-2 in WHL pre-season action on Sunday night.
“It was pretty clear from the scoreboard they outplayed us and outworked us,” said Broncos associate coach Ryan Smith. “They played to win we played like it was a Sunday night rec game. It was disappointing to see the effort from our guys. We thought we might build on Friday but we failed to do that.”
The Broncos got goals from Cavin Leth and Calvin Spencer in a losing cause.
After a 2-1 win over the Hurricanes on Friday they weren’t careful enough with the puck back home on Sunday.
“We turned the puck over,” Smith said. “Every goal that they got was breakaways, turned the puck over in front of our net, passing blindly… four of their six goals were just simple us giving them great opportunities. Defensively we were careless with the puck.”
